Content curation is the process of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a specific theme. The work involves sifting, sorting, arranging, and publishing information. Beth Kanter

Content Curation basically means that out of all the content you find on the social web you pass on the most valuable stuff to your network. Michiel Gaasterland

GETTING PERSONAL

Do you risk losing professional credibility if you tweet about meeting with friends at a bar for happy hour, or does that help provide a human connection point? When does the personal side of social media overwhelm the professional, or vice versa? Abby Nafziger , AmeriCorps VISTA at NPower
